Screenshot showing the problem

Font size of text within shapes/diagrams is being imported incorrectly, which breaks the shape layout.

For instance, in the attached DOCX file notice that the font size is 11pt in MS Word, but it is imported as 12pt in LO Writer (see attached screenshot).

I am using LO 7.3 rc2 on Windows, but I got the same result with LO 7.2.5 on Linux.

Weirdly, using LO 7.4 alpha, the text was not imported.

Let's keep info on font size, It was OK 11 in LO 6.4 and NOK 12 in LO 7.0.
To be opened another bug after this one.

How it looks after changing anchor type in 7.4

I have just seen this.
The problem likely the missing implementation of As_char anchor for group-shapes in textboxhelper, what i am working for now. If you change the anchor to another type (at char for example as in my attachemnt) what is implemented the text will be shown. Of course this have to be fixed, so i am on it. Patch soon. :)
And, the font size is fixed ;)
